Old news, but I just found this article, notable for using the spelling, "reëlection" :shock:

Re: What sports teams do you support?

Ah, I was misunderstanding what the scoreboard was telling us.

The bonus point is for Australia, for losing by seven or less.

Re: What sports teams do you support?

New Zealand 35 - 29 Australia

The scoreboard was showing a bonus point for New Zealand, but either that's wrong, or I don't understand the new rules.

Bledisloe Cup stays in New Zealand.

WTF? Southern hemisphere changed the bonus point system?

Certainly I knew about it. Never used it though.

I think that was more of a general purpose publishing system, as opposed to LaTeX, which is mostly for scientific papers. (And also for a few people like me, who use it for, well, anything.)

LaTeX Oddity

I use LaTeX for just about every document I produce. The only time I ever use evil MS software to produce documents is when it is essentially forced on me by other people. Maybe hippietrekx uses LaTeX now also; I don't know. Among the functions of LaTeX is (really the main function) is the arrangeme...

Re: President Donald J. Trump

I'm going to take a somewhat different spin on the discussion on democracy. The founders of the US were deeply distrustful of democracy, and went to considerable lengths to protect the future Americans from democracy. These protections have been weakened somewhat over time, as the US government has ...

I would think it would be a boon in many things. The solution to a constrained optimisation problem cannot be better than the solution to an unconstrained optimisation problem.

Re: Another craze run its course?

meanwhile my own theory is that when a food trend makes it to McDonald's, it has run its course. And just a few days ago, I see McDonald's has added kale to their menu. Hopefully it will now fade away. No more kale chips in the snack aisle. No more quinoa with kale - in the handy steamer pouch - in...

Re: Another craze run its course?

There is a similar but opposite trend too; the one where things are bad for you. Eggs were bad for you for a while, but now they're good and healthy again. Beef was too. I can't wait for gluten to go back to just being a protein. So all the eggs I ate back when they were bad, were they still bad fo...

Mactep, does that correspond with your number of visits here? Or perhaps the number of different IP addresses you may have visited from? Could be.
